Love blooms in Niagara Parks

Niagara Wedding Planner & Officiant

Christina and Andrei's Niagara Parks Wedding

Christina and Andrei's wedding took place on a beautiful summer day in the middle of August.  The day started off with them getting ready along with their respective wedding parties.  During this time, one of Christina's incredible talents was demonstrated... She opened up the bottle of champagne for the toast with her ladies with a gigantic knife! After toasts were done and everyone was ready, Christina and Andrei along with their wedding parties all headed over to The Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens for their first look.  The first look took place among the Hornbeam Vista.  A stunning backdrop for such a special moment.  After their first look, Andrei and the groomsmen started to greet guests as they started to arrive for their ceremony which took place in front of the large willow tree at the Willow Pond.

Their wedding ceremony had live music performed by The Fox Duo.  I was lucky enough to have the best view in the place as I was not only their wedding coordinator but I was also their officiant.  It was so wonderful to be able to present them for the very first time as husband and wife.  After the ceremony, our lovely bride and groom along with their wedding party and families, stayed for photos within the Botanical Gardens before heading over to Legends on the Niagara where their reception was taking place.

The reception at Legends on the Niagara took place outside on the terrace overlooking the water and golf course below.  Such a beautiful view for everyone to enjoy during dinner.  The reception space was beautifully decorated in neutral tones with gold and acrylic accents.  The flowers were in stunning shades of peachy blush and ivory.  Each guest received a jar of Greaves jam as a wedding favour to take home.  Guests enjoyed a delicious 4 course meal with speeches between each course.  After dinner, Christina and Andrei enjoyed their first dance as a married couple before joining with their parents for the traditional Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances.  Guests were then entertained when Christina and Andrei played the shoe game before Christina tossed her bouquet.

It was a beautiful wedding on the most perfect summer day!  Enjoy the photos below!
